I am try to program my own solver under /opt/openfoam211, however, after modify the original script, I use the Allwmake to recompile. Then lots of error comes up. I think this is because of permission under /opt directory.

I copied openfoam211 folder to /home/OpenFOAM/ and use ./Allwmake again. The error now are:
Quote:
Error: Current directory is not /opt/openfoam211
Error: Current directory is not $WM_PROJECT_DIR
The environment variables are inconsistent with the installation.
Check the OpenFOAM entries in your dot-files and source them.
I am not sure how to solve the problem. Could anyone tell me what you normally do when you want to compile your own solvers ?

Hello James,

Try this tutorial:
http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Ho...ure_to_icoFoam

1.) you don't need to copy the complete openfoam211 folder, you simply need a folder for your solver in $WM_PROJECT_USER_DIR/applications/solvers/
2.) Therefore you don't need to use Allwmake, but simply wmake in your solver directory
3.) To prevent the permission problem with the /opt directory, all of your solvers are compiled in $FOAM_USER_APPBIN (probably found in /home/user/OpenFOAM/user-2.1.1/platforms), instead of FOAM_APPBIN. You declare this in yoursolverdirectory/Make/files --> see the tutorial

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the quick reply.

After I follow the tutorial provided, I found there is another problem when I use 'wmake'
The terminal says" make: *** No rule to make target `icoFoam.dep', needed by `Make/linuxGccDPOpt/dependencies'. Stop."

I am not sure why this happen? Have you met some problem like this?

I have solved the above problem by making some small change, however even I use wmake not in /opt folder, it still says that I don't have permission.

From the prompt, I don't know why it still try to access folder in /opt rather than in ~/OpenFoam

Cheers!

Greetings to all!

Quoting the wiki page:
Quote:
Now go into the Make subdirectory and open the 'files' file with your favorite editor. Change it to read:
Code:
my_icoFoam.C

EXE = $(FOAM_USER_APPBIN)/my_icoFoam
It's "FOAM_USER_APPBIN", not "FOAM_APPBIN"

Best regards,
Bruno
